    All 4 are bantams.....and 4 weeks or so old...what i was told was 3 hens and a roo by the hatcher....but i need to make sure b4 Decisions are made...but i have grown to love them all...PLZ PLZ help !!!
    They all hatched the same day....Chick #1 was the ONLY one to be slow on feather growth, and is just getting in his/her tail feathers...and is only one that seems "protective" over the others

    It's difficult to tell, but I'm inclined to agree that you have 3 pullets and a cockeral. However, in a couple weeks I could change my mind... [​IMG]

    WOW..Thank you for all the thoughts ...i would of thought for sure that #4 was Hen and #1 was Roo (just because #1 is only one to develop late and only one with thick legs)..... Either way....3 hens and roo is what i am hoping for....Thank you for all the help [​IMG]
